Educating slum, govt schools and community children in Hyderabad about basic eye care and screening them for the vision problems. We also care to provide free of cost treatment and medical aid to those identified with problems

About the Project

Most ocular injuries in children are preventable by early detection, education and change in environmental conditions.

Current Scenario: According to a source 45 million people worldwide are bilaterally blind, of which 6 to 8 million are blind due to corneal disease. In India, there are approximately 7 million people who have corneal blindness with vision <6/60 in at least one eye. Out of 7 million, about 1 million have bilateral corneal blindness. If the present trend continues, it is expected that in India the corneal blindnes will increase to 8.5 million in 2010 and 10.6 million by 2020. In India, there were a total of two million corneal blindness cases, with 40,000 to 50,000 cases added every year.

Mission: Prevention of blindness among children by early detection of vision problems, educating children, teachers and parents about maintaining the eye hygeine and prevention of corneal injuries during festivals like diwali, holi and play.
